Governance

Providing oversight through collaboration.

 

Group of employees meeting

We implement a robust governance structure to ensure that our Global Sustainability program both meets our company’s social and environmental goals and supports our business.

Strong governance is essential to the work of sustainability. These efforts start with a commitment from our leadership, whose input and oversight play a critical role in driving our progress. For us, good governance begins with a strong Board of Directors that has an independent perspective on our business and company management, including our approach to creating social and environmental change.

Strong governance is essential to the work of sustainability. These efforts start with a commitment from our leadership.

Our organizational structure allows collaboration across key departments at Gap Inc. 

Gap Inc.’s Board of Directors, particularly the Governance and Sustainability Committee, oversees our Global Sustainability program. The board receives regular updates on social and environmental risks and opportunities from Chief Growth Transformation Officer, Sally Gilligan, who is responsible for Gap Inc’s sustainability efforts. Sally is a member of Gap Inc’s Executive Leadership Team.

Our organizational structure allows collaboration across key departments. Our Global Sustainability team works closely with our brands’ Product and Marketing teams, Supply Chain, Corporate Strategy, Government Affairs, Public Affairs, Legal and Gap Foundation teams, among others.
